The suburban Melbourne circuit will play host to three 110-kilometre sprint races with the running spread across three days.

Friday will feature two practice sessions, one for the primary drivers and another dedicated to Bathurst 1000 co-drivers.

That will mark the only official co-driver session before the Great Race weekend kicks off in early October.

On Saturday there is a third practice session ahead of a three-part qualifying session that will see the first five rows for Race 1 determined by a Top 10 Shootout.

That opening race will the be held on Saturday evening.

On Sunday there are two 10-minute qualifying sessions to set the grids for the remaining two sprint races.

The tyre bank will be limited to five sets of the Dunlop super soft from the beginning of Saturday qualifying onwards.

Shane van Gisbergen heads into the weekend as the overwhelming favourite, given his Triple Eight squad has won the last seven races at Sandown.

The Kiwi holds a whopping 393-point series lead over Cam Waters which means he could sit out a round and still head the standings.
